Inauguration-3.jpg

This Jan. 20, 2009, file photo shows the crowd on the National Mall in Washington for the swearing-in ceremony of President-elect Barack Obama. Four years and one re-election after Obama became America’s first black president, some of the thrill is gone. Yes, the inauguration of a U.S. president is still a big deal, but the ceremony Washington will stage in a few weeks won’t be the heady, historic affair it was in 2009, when nearly two million people flocked to the National Mall to see Obama take the oath of office. This time, District of Columbia officials expect between 600,000 and 800,000 people for Obama’s public swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol on Monday, Jan. 21.
